    10/10 Would Tech Elevator Again

    I recently completed the Java Applications Development bootcamp from January 2016 - April 2016. Prior to the bootcamp, I had some exposure to the IT industry doing QA, support and project management. I had a vague idea of what to expect, but no experience writing code. During my job search in the fall of 2015, I heard an add for Tech Elevator on NPR. I was intrigued, and decided to attend an open house in the begining of December. After observing the passion and knowledge of the instructor...

    Tech Elevator Exceeds Expectations

    I truly cannot say enough good things about my Tech Elevator experience.  After feeling stagnant in my marketing career for quite some time, I became intrigued by the tech industry and the bootcamp model of learning.  I attended an open house at Tech Elevator and listened to their team talk about the program and from there I was sold.  Their passion and knowledge was clear, and I ultimately decided to quit my job and sign up.  At the time it felt like a scary and risky move, but I wa...

    Best Professional Decision I've Ever Made

    I was enrolled in Tech Elevator's Java Applications Development course from January through April 2016. Before I started the program I had very little experience with programming and no practical experience at all with Java. My last job had absolutely nothing to do with programming. Within days of graduating, I already had job offers and am now employed full-time as a software developer.

    The course was rigorous without being overwhelming. The day usually started off with a lectur...

    I did hit the UP button

    After making the decision to move from life science research into software development (without prior experience), I realized that a 4-year degree was out of reach; however, the bootcamp model of education taking less than 4 months appeared to gain traction nationwide, and I looked into the Cleveland area's options. Tech Elevator stood out as a spacious, friendly environment, run by an enormously qualified and engaged team who sincerely cared about moving their students' careers upwards.

    Java Bootcamp Experience at Tech Elevator

    Before attending Tech Elevator I was working part-time in retail and playing music on the side. Though I didn't have a background in coding, I was into computers and technology. Once I heard about Tech Elevator, I started looking into programming and what I could do with it. I was fascinated and intrigued by the things a programmer can create with code. It didn't take me long to decide that I wanted to attend Tech Elevator.

    The first 4 weeks were intense, but o...

    My Tech Elevator Experience

    Prior to the class I had some experience building websites, and troubleshooting any computer and network difficulties. I had always had the desire to learn how to program, but I found it difficult to learn online, and the personal investment to attend a traditional university was unpractical for me. After completing the course I felt thoroughly prepared for the market place. I was quickly granted many interviews and was able to land my first choice.

    Java Coding Bootcamp - Review

    As you go through life there are key moments that drastically change your course in life, and, for me, the decision to attend  Tech Elevator was one of them.  After more than fifteen years in retail I was treading water in a position that had become just  a job to me, something I had to do to pay the bills.  I had done some work on my own designing a website using HTML, CSS,  PHP and a little Javascript, and I found it fascinating, but lacking direction and support I couldn't see myself ge...

    Java Bootcamp at Tech Elevator

    After several years working in industry (international trade) I wanted to study coding both to add to my skill set and to open up new career paths. Tech Elevator's lead Java instructor, David, brough his extensive career experience into the classroom - he proved to be a great teacher, really devoted, and I felt he truly cared about the progress of our class, often responding to email queries on homework assignments late into the night and early mornings, and also w...

    My Tech Elevator Experince

    Initially skeptical about the effectiveness of software engineering bootcamps, I conducted thorough research, interviewing alumni and reviewing various programs. Despite common concerns about inadequate career coaching and outdated curriculums in many bootcamps, my experience with Tech Elevator (TE) was remarkably different.



    At TE, I found the curriculum to be an excellent foundation for an entry-level engineer. The instructors and staff were consistently acce...

    Great foundation. Wonderful teachers and overall experience.

    I really enjoyed the classroom structure and exercises.  I learned the most from the Capstones and really liked how available the teachers were for questions.  The pathway program provided great insight in how/where to apply to jobs and with resume structure.  I wish there was exercises/learning that leaned more into computer science areas and in breaking down more complex technical interview questions.  A decent amount of interview questions are on topics not covered in class (bits in p...
